Vision and Design Development

It’s now up to us to interpret your vision as part of the design development. When we present it you’ll know we, “get you”. But this is also when any changes can be discussed and considered. We may need to go back to the drawing board to finesse your vision by incorporating changes.

We develop new space plans, furniture plans, and color palettes, as well as select your new interior finishes such as paint, wallcovering, flooring, ceiling and window treatments, moldings, cabinetry and countertops.   This is also the phase when any custom-designed pieces or treatments would be sketched for your review.

After we finish sourcing your job we meet with you to review the plans and finish selections and make any refinements needed.

Details and Documentation

With the scope of work determined, and the design development clarified, we then generate technical drawings. These drawings clarify your vision precisely and will be essential throughout the process to the contractor, trades and you.

After you receive several contractor bids and their proposed timelines, we assist you in reviewing each to ensure accuracy and fair pricing.

We also draft and submit purchase orders for all of your equipment, interior finishes, and furnishings so items are received and ready to install before construction begins.

Construction and Installation

Designers love the Construction Phase!  We get to see our ideas come to life and your happiness.  We stop by the job site weekly to ensure work is progressing as planned and installations are successful.   We meet with you to address any of your concerns.

Following construction, we coordinate the delivery and installation of your new furnishings, accessories and artwork.

The Finale
